AND THE WINNERS WERE. . .
RUSTIC CANYON G.C. - 04/01/2021: Well, it was April Fools Day and the biggest
Johnnie Whitaker
Mr. Whitaker
prank was how difficult this course can sometimes play as our tally sheet recorded average scoring from the Back Tees at 91.0; from the Middle Tees at 94.2, and from the Forward Tees at 103.6!! Low Round of the Day considering the difficulty was a respectable 86 posted by Member Qualifier Johnnie Whitaker on his 5th and final round required for membership admittance. The day's top winnings of $69 went to Miguel Romero with 1st Places in both Low Net and Partners, runner-up in Porter Low Gross and a solo birdie award. Brian Oblak's 88 Gross extracted $44 in winnings from his Super Low Gross win, a tie for 2nd Low Putts, and his own solo tweeter. Next was Tom Knickerbocker's $36 takeaway from a Partners 3rd Place and his own share of the birdie booty followed by the $32 payout to Pat Gallagher for the 4th solo birdie award of the day. The day's Low Putts prize of $26 saluted Val Mayer's winning 31 flat-blade strokes. Jim Sabbe pocketed $24 for winning the Porter Low Gross and Jeff Sable claimed $15 from his runner-up spots in both Low Net and Partners. Single digit dollar distributions had John Moskoff paired with Miguel in Partners 1st Place for $9, Bob Stone as 3rd Low Net for $8, Mark Vaughan tied for 2nd Low Putts worth $6, Bruce Simon in Partners 2nd Place for $5, Craig Fehrman in Partners 3rd Place for $4, and Ron Troncatty getting $2 as Super Gross runner-up.
SIMI HILLS G.C. - 04/08/2021: The 21-Player field wagering boosted the two Designated Birdie payouts to $34 apiece but there were none except for Bob Stone's dramatic solo tweeter on Hole #17 resulting in a dandy double dip payout of $68. A solo Blind Drawn Birdie and tie for the day's Low Putts tallied $47 for Craig Fehrman. The Porter Low Gross winner was Jim Sabbe who also nabbed the day's Low Net and a tie for Partners 2nd Place to pocket $44. New Member Johnnie Whitaker, playing in his first official round, fired a solid 74 to claim the Super Low Gross by 3 shots, tied for 1st in Low Putts, and shared a Blind Draw Birdie for $42 winnings. Ron Troncatty was the Super Gross runner-up also adding a Partners 1st Place and the other half of Whitaker's birdie for a $29 haul. Tom Knickerbocker took the Porter Gross runner-up spot and tied for 2nd Low Net to earn a $19 payout. Ties for 2nd Place in both Low Net and Partners sent $12 to John Moskoff while Stan Weiner was paired up with RonTron to win the Partners worth an even Ten Bucks. Precisely $3 apiece were the rewards to the trio of Jimmy Dodds, Pat Gallagher, and Jeff Sable, all tied for 2nd Place in Partners.
BUENAVENTURA G.C. - 04/15/2021 For the second week in a row Bob Stone's name topped the Money Winner's List taking $41 from the wager pots with the day's Low Putts, a tie for 3rd Low Net, and 1/2 share birdie loot. The Porter Low Gross winner was Jim Sabbe for the THIRD week in a Row (wow, mov'em back!)and he also had a 1/2 shared birdie for a $36 take. Bruce Simon tallied the only solo birdie award along with a tie for 2nd Low Putts to earn $35. Kudos to Ron Troncatty who posted a sizzling 72 Gross that captured the closely contested Super Low Gross award by two shots. RonTron added a Partners 1st Place, a tie for 3rd Low Net, and his own 1/4 share of the birdie booty, for $28 winnings. Mark Vaughan also dipped into the birdie pot for a 1/2 shared tweeter while adding the Porter Low Gross runner-up spot to pocket $26. Tony Giapapas earned $24 from both a 1/4 birdie share AND a half-share of another birdie. Halfway down the Winners List was Mike Belson's $23 from his Partners 1st Place and tie for the day's Low Net. Jeff Sable claimed the other half for that Low Net prize and added a Partners 2nd Place for $19. Still more birdie loot was available as 1/2 shares went to both Tom Knickerbocker and Burman Deshautelle. The Knick added a Partners 2nd for his $13 total and Burman tied for that Super Low Gross runner-up spot to receive an even Ten Bucks. Another $10 went to Brian Oblak with runner-up ties in both Super Low Gross and Low Putts plus a Partners 3rd. Craig Fehrman was partnered with Brian to earn a modest $3.
OLIVAS LINKS G.C. - 04/22/2021 At day's end this four foursome fracas found Bob Stone atop the heap clutching $44 accumulated from his solo birdie and First Place in Low Putts. Ron Troncatty pocketed $42 after winning the Super Low Gross award, taking 2nd in Low Putts, and snaring a 1/2 birdie share. Tony Giapapas won the Porter Low Gross category, added his own solo birdie, and a tie for 3rd Low Net to claim an identical $42. By sharing RonTron's birdie and tying for 3rd Low Net, Tom Knickerbocker picked up $28. Ted Winship's even Ten Bucks winnings resulted from his Partners 1st Place and a tie for the day's Low Net. Joe Cala arrived at the Pay Window with a ticket worth $15 for 1st Low Net(tie) and Partners 3rd Place. Craig Fehrman's $12 take came from his Porter Gross runner-up, Partners 2nd Place, and tie for 3rd Low Net. Marilou Miller was partnered with Teddy in 1st Place worth $8. The Super Gross runner-up spot and a Partners 3rd Place sent $5 to Brian Oblak and the Partners 2nd Place provided $4 to Miguel Romero while the remaining half-dozen unrewarded competitors applauded graciously.
LOS ROBLES GREENS G.C. - 04/29/20212: Tony Giapapas' solo birdie on Hole #8 captured the entire Designated Birdie wager pot for a $56 payout as no other "Designated's" were birdied. Ron Troncatty's sizzling 74 Gross easily won the Super Low Gross award by a bundle and he added a tie for the day's Low Net, a Partners 2nd Place, and a solo Blind Draw Birdie for a $44 take. Marilou Miller tied RonTron for that Low Net and also took 1st Place in Low Putts for a $28 payout. The second Blind Draw Birdie had Miguel Romero's name on it worth $26. Jim Sabbe once again commandeered the Porter Low Gross award along with a Partners 3rd Place to pocket $19. John Moskoff and Jimmy Dodds were like an old vaudeville duo act, tying for 1st Place in Low Net and pairing up to win Partners for $16 apiece. The Super Gross runner-up was Johnnie Whitaker who also was the Low Putts runner-up to win $12. The Porter Low Gross runner-up spot paid out $6 to Tom Knickerbocker while $4 rewarded Bruce Simon in Partners 2nd Place and Bob Stone picked up $3 for Partners 3rd Place.
